Piekenierskloof

South Africa

For years I had been hearing about Piekenierskloof – not as a wine producer but as a source of grapes for numerous other winemakers, young and old.

I didn’t realise that Piekenierskloof wasn’t just a ward (the smallest geographical unit in the South African regional classification) but one large estate, formerly a...

Piekenierskloof, Stonedance, Granite White, Swartland, 2021

You won't see many Swartland Chenin blends for around a tenner. Stonedance is the Piekenierskloof estate’s Fairtrade brand, part sourced from other local farmers: 85% Chenin Blanc with 15% Viognier. Lime and tangerine aromas. Fresh and sprightly, with notes of green apple and melon. Pleasant texture from the Chenin – indeed, lightly creamy in the mid-palate; and finishes with a mineral zip. Easy all-rounder, perfect to drink on its own or with prawn and crab dishes. Now-2023

Piekenierskloof is a ward (the smallest geographical unit in the South African regional classification) based on one large estate, formerly a co-operative but now owned principally by two brothers, grandsons of Johan Abraham Van Zyl who first settled the heights above Citrusdal in 1923. The derivation of the name is from the establishment of outposts on the mountain pass by Dutch Piekeniers, pikemen.

The vineyards lie across the Paleisheuwel plateau in the Citrusdal mountains at 550-700m. of altitude – all dry-farmed with a high percentage of very old vines. The climate is perfect, with sunny summers and cooling breezes making for low yields and healthy fruit. With an impressive managing and winemaking team of Cerina and Jaco Van Niekerk in place, this estate’s wines deliver outstanding value.

Wine merchant with interesting wines. We are currently enjoying the mixed case of wines from Gascony. All are really delicious and fit a variety of foods. Delivery was swift. I would like to think…

Excellent wines sourced and chosen by the founder/wine expert, Simon Taylor. We were one of Stone Vine & Sun's very first clients and always buy from them. First-class knowledge and service.
